    What exactly are you looking for? Belt drive or hydro fixed or floating? Any brand preference? Ballpark price?

    Fixed deck - 32" belt, 48" hydro. Scag, Deere, Exmark, Lesco, etc. Price depends on condition and hours, but say $1000 for the 32" and $2000 for the 48".

    Hi, hope you find what you are looking for. If you hear of a gear driven 48 you dont want, please pass me the info.It is odd there is never any equipment for sale around here isnt it?

    Will do on the 48"

    I think all of the equipment passes from LCO to LCO without ever being posted for sale anywhere. Found a great deal on a trailer this weekend sitting in someone's front yard. Oh yes - it shall be painted green. :weightlifter:

    Also dont forget to keep an eye on Craigslist,no telling what you can find on there.

    I look at Craigslist everyday. Have also resorted to looking at Dallas area listings
    where it seems there is approx. 10x the resale activity. For the life of me, I can't figure out why there would be such a variance in equipment exchange between two metropolitan areas separated by just 200 miles.
